A Malaysian man who went by the nickname "David - King of Fake Booze" has been arrested. 

 

Real name Chan Fat Yat, 63, he had been supplying fake Johnny Walker, Chivas Regal and other brands to the market in Thailand for 30 years. 

 

He was charged with producing and distributing fake liquor and also being on overstay. 

 

A vinyl board at a press conference at the tourist police office at Suvarnabhumi airport yesterday itemised the extent of the Malaysian's activities headlining his "King David" nickname. 

 

Chan had associates in Hat Yai, sent in vital equipment by air, ordered old bottles of high end whisky to fill up and used organizations like Grab and Lineman to delivery his fake products. 

 

After information received from the south the tourist police in Bangkok moved and arrested the suspect in the parking lot of The Mall Bangkapi on Monday. 

 

A lot of evidence was presented at the press conference announcing his arrest after a criminal career spanning 30 years, reported 77kaoded.

One may get you blind the other not. 

Should that not be; "send" or "make" rather than "get". 😉

Pretty sure enough of either, you will get blind.

Its extremely annoying when going to a bar and getting fake whisky... 

 

I sometimes don't want to drink beer, feel bloated etc... so I like to move on to Whisky, i.e. Jamesons, the issue is at so many bars its so obviously fake... additionally after just 2 or 3 glasses I can also notice in the morning after feeling a little rough (I don't suffer headaches etc when drinking the real stuff).

Definitely...   I can especially tell fake Jamesons from the real stuff... 

 

The bigger issue for us [the consumer] is if we are drinking a lot of the stuff, the fake is made without controls or safety measures, the chemicals / type of alcohol used could be more damaging to us.
